Great for travel, plane rides, car rides, or just taking things to work., March 10, 2016 By Michael G (Milton, FL, US) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: GEARONIC TM Men’s Vintage Canvas and Leather Satchel School Military Shoulder Bag Messenger Some reviews have stated that this bag is small, I have to disagree. If I wanted a larger bag I would wear a backpack. For what this bag is intended for, it works great. I can fit a tablet, some paperwork, a book, my phone, wallet, pens/pencils, charging cords and much more in it. It is just the right size for what I was looking for. And guys, it looks very manly as well. The leather straps and the stitching make it a very attractive satchel for men. The leather straps and stitching are very solidly built. I have included a few pictures to show this. The tablet in the photo is 5”x8” tablet and the pencil is a standard pencil. I put these in the photos for size comparison. If you wanted to put a magazine in the larger pocket it would fit nicely. I use the two front pockets for my wallet and phone and can fit my power cord for my phone right alongside it. The bottom corners are reinforced leather to keep them from wearing out, a nice feature as I have had bags in the past that would wear out in this spot quickly from being set on the floor or drug around. I have used this bag for a few weeks now and have not had any problems with it and have had many complements on it. Inside the case is a small zippered pocket for storing items like pens or pencils or business cards, keeping them from getting lost in the bottom of the case. I received this product at a reduced price in exchange for my unbiased evaluation of the product and willingness to put it through thorough testing.

This review is from: GEARONIC TM Men’s Vintage Canvas and Leather Satchel School Military Shoulder Bag Messenger 1. I love the color. I received the “coffee” color and it’s very stylish. I’m not a girly girl, so having a bag that can go with my ‘jeans and tshirts’ is amazing. I’m currently using my kids old bookbag :(.2. The stitching is an offset color. Mine is more or an orange color but it goes with the coffee color of the bag3. There is leather reinforced on the bottom.4. Pockets galore! The 2 side pockets easily fit my phone (note 5) and the front little pockets easily fit my Dell Venue 7 (picture with pink tablet out of it). The larger center pocket holds my husband 15″ laptop with no worries. I could possible fit some magazines and a few charging cables in if I wanted too. There is also a smaller pocket inside the center larger pocket. Maybe for a wallet or keys or such.6. I haven’t washed it yet but I’m sure when I do, it may need to be on delicatessen, cold water and with nothing else. When I took it out of the packaging, I could instantly smell the leather. There are no washing instructions or labeling inside the bag or with the packaging.7. Amongst all the room and pockets, I transferred my bookbag contents to my new bag and I still have room for other things. Now mind you, I have an 11 and 7 year old boys and a 3 month old daughter. I’m able to take my wallet, keys, makeup bag, nail bag, phone and tablet as well as their tablets and phones and baby tethers and such. I would definitely recommend this bag to a man or woman… **I received this product for free or at a discounted price for my honest and unbiased review.

This review is from: GEARONIC TM Men’s Vintage Canvas and Leather Satchel School Military Shoulder Bag Messenger This bag retails for roughly $25 and has a great look and feel to it. The canvas material feels solid and the design is gender neutral which makes it quite versatile for anyone and any day to day occasion. I also think the color options are great. It is a nice size as it fit a 15″ laptop (although with not much width to spare, but plenty of depth), an ipad and other office supplies held in the pockets with some room to spare. Although, be aware there is not a lot of padding, so it is not necessarily meant to hold large electronics (like a laptop/ipad) and the description doesn’t necessarily suggest that. However, the buckles and straps hold nicely and the shoulder strap is plenty long enough. For the price it would be a great bag with the exception of the overall quality. Upon opening the package, it has a strong (and not necessarily pleasant) smell, but that dissipates after a day or two. The other issue is the the stitching is a bit loose all around the bag (frayed on the buckle straps, etc.). And the biggest issue is that one of the button flaps, is sewed on backwards rendering it non-functional. It’s obvious quality control is not great on the mass production of the bags, which can be common at this price point for this style of bag. It’s important to add I make that determination based on the fact that a friend of mine ordered this same bag, and one of the buttons is sewed on backwards (so you cannot snap it). I kind of expected something small like that, but sewing on a flap completely backwards, is not only worse, but makes the pocket a lot less useful. Because of the rather large quality issue (coupled with the thread looseness/fraying I had to take two stars off the overall rating). For the price it’s a decent bag if all arrives in perfect condition, but with the $25 price tag I at least expected the quality to be a bit higher. I did receive this bag at a discount in exchange for an honest review and I hope my review helps you make a purchasing decision!
